Meet Hannah

I'm Hannah Bryerton, a Chick-fil-A eating, people-loving, Christmas-obsessed creative who genuinely loves life. When I'm not capturing a wedding, you will likely find me consuming way too much ice cream, dancing to early 2000's hip-hop, planning my next big trip, binge-watching shows on Netflix with my husband, or wandering around TJ Maxx searching for, yet another, notebook, coffee mug or piece of furniture! My major flaws include: an extreme fear of mice, backseat driving, continuously changing my hairstyle, laughing way too hard at my own jokes, owning far too many shoes, always making lists/spreadsheets, and overreacting every time I see a golden retriever. (Although, just a disclaimer, I will not apologize for any of these shortcomings!)

Really & truly, I believe that I was put on this earth to serve others. Photography is an art in which I am incredibly passionate, but even more so, I desire to know and love the individuals I work with.  "Sonder" is a term used to describe the realization that each person has a life as complex and vivid as your own. This concept & feeling is the reason I do what I do. Every individual's story is unique and worth telling, and I know that I am called by God to do exactly that! When I say I am dying to meet you, please know I mean it with every inch of my being. I am so glad you are here and genuinely cannot wait to get to know you! 

Fun facts

about

traveling

driving

love it.

leave it.

Give me all the sunny beaches, historic cities & scenic views. 

Road trips seem great in theory, until you're stuck in traffic for hours.

dancing

dancing well

love it.

leave it.

In the car, kitchen or grocery aisle. If the music is good, this girl dances. 

I never claimed it was pretty.

next

late nights

mornings

love it.

leave it.

"Only one more email" at 9 PM turns into twelve more emails 'til 1 AM. This is a daily occurrence.

Hate is an understatement. You will never meet less of a morning person in your lifetime. I promise.

next

eating

cooking

love it.

leave it.

Food is my love language. I'd consider eating a hobby... if that was normal.

Disclaimer: It's not that I can't do it. It's that I simply don't like to.

shopping

spending 
money

love it.

leave it.

If bargain hunting was an Olympic sport, I'd have more medals than Michael Phelps.

As a child, I always had an emergency fund in a jar under my bed. Dave Ramsey would be proud.

making lists

making my bed

love it.

leave it.

Nothing feels as good as checking every item off your to-do list. Nothing.

"I will be back in fifteen hours, seriously what's the point?" -Me every morning

next

christmas

 wny winter

love it.

leave it.

I'm one of those November 1st people & gift giving is my love language. It really is the most wonderful time of year!

Snow is the bane of my existence. Everything would be fine if it simply stopped snowing in January. Not April.

Are we a match?

so let's decide...

Just like you've found your once-in-a-lifetime person, I want to be your once-in-a-lifetime photographer.  I want you to look at my photographs and think, "holy MOLY this is IT!" (As you dance around in excitement) I want to photograph couples who are fun, joyful & genuine... who aren't afraid to be themselves... who are weird & goofy and so in love that nothing else matters! So are we a good fit? Well, you tell me! If I am your once-in-a-lifetime photographer... I say we do this thing!
